Right now, you use
.. raw:: latex
directives. Kind of clumsy for inline expressions, but not too bad
for display equations. For long stretches of inline math in text, we
just do ".. raw:: latex" and write everything in LaTeX. Not ideal,
but works OK. I'm certainly looking forward to cleaning everything up
with latex-math.
Once you have that, invoking
epydoc --latex mypython.py
generates a directory of .tex files and
epydoc --html mypython.py
generates a directory of .html files.
Epydoc has a --pdf option, but it goes via .dvi --> .ps --> .pdf,
which is kind of silly in this day and age. epydoc generates a master
api.tex file, but we ignore and/or manipulate that and use our own
that we feed straight through pdflatex.
